The Absence announces new guitarist
Tampa, Florida's The Absence has announced that guitarist Per Nilsson of Scar Symmetry has joined the group. The band has already begun tracking their new EP with James Murphy and will release a single from the effort soon. Nilsson had the following to say:
"Six years ago the guys asked me to do a guest solo for the 'Riders' album and we've been friends ever since. I've followed their career as a fan and when they reached out asking me to join the band, it was a no-brainer. I am super excited to be a part of The Absence family; we've been jamming out some new tunes and I feel like we've got some killer stuff in the works for ya! Between Patrick and me, there's gonna be some INSANE guitar shreddin' on the new tunes!"
